I was forced to do a speed-reading course at highschool, which was odd, because I was already reading 2000 words a minute, which was way faster than anybody else in my class. The teacher didn't quite know what to do with me. Anyway, one of the tips she gave us is to leave out the little words like 'and', 'the', 'it', 'is', etc etc, and also follow the line on the page with your finger for the first wee while. Once you're reading too fast for your finger to follow on the single line, draw it down the middle of the page. Once you're sorted with that, you don't need to use your finger anymore. That is really just a technique to train the eye, more than anything else.
